GUI connection error

Post by s.koptsov » February 14th, 2014, 8:06 am

Good afternoon,
I've an issue connecting to GUI server from WIndows 2012 R2 (and Windows 7) to Centos 6.4

Error message in GUI client on Windows is - http://pastebin.com/aB67ar5j
Info on OS and Java versions are - http://pastebin.com/3k4r7rkg

Sep Sesam server and gui version - 4.2.2.18

sm_main status - all daemons online (uncluding rmi)

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

Hello,

this looks like a rights problem. The cause can be:

- firewall
- the client isn't allowed to connect the server with a GUI http://wiki.sepsoftware.com/wiki/index. ... ion_3.x.3F
- a name resolution problem (GUI PC and Sesam Server must be [correct and identical] resolvable)

Can't understand why in error log it tries connection to localhost, not Sep domain name

Connection refused to host: localhost;

I've verified permissions and name resolution, and disabled iptables along with windows firewall.
Will try to perform a clean install on older Centos version

Hi,

check your /etc/hosts and on the GUI PC c:\windows\system32\drives\etc\hosts file.

How do you attempt to start the GUI? From the shortcut which was created during installation?
If so, there an "-S" statement in the link. Maybe for whatever reason it points to "localhost" instead of the desired box's dns name or ip address? Sounds silly, but you never know.
Otherwise you can always grab a trace to verify where the GUI really want to connect to.

On sesam server edited /var/opt/sesam/var/ini/sm.ini
gv_server=localhost
changed to
gv_server=sep (domain name in DNS)

sm_main reload
and was able to open GUI
